Bright clean rooms, lovely garden, friendly staff & great dog! There's also a pool although we didn't use it. Breakfast included and you can request dinner in the evening if you don't want to head out. Great for families, couples and singles. Just a 5 minute drive into town. Highly recommend anyone to stay - def you won't be disappointed... More

The hotel is small relaxed and set in beautiful tropical gardens. What really makes it special though is the staff and in particular the owner Priyan. I had asked for some flowers to be placed into the room before we arrived as a surprise for my daughter. When we arrived they had not only put in a bouquet of flowers... More

We were stayed here with our 5 year old son and 18 month old daughter. The property is beautiful and the hosts are lovely. Really loved this place and highly recommend it. The property is beautiful too and it is close to Kandy by tuk tuk. They make delicious food and nothing is too much trouble!

Lovely little hotel with gardens, pool and possibly the best home cooked food. Rooms were comfortable and service really good. We received a nice welcome on arrival - offered tea and home made cheesecake in their living area. Felt very homely and warm. Will definitely be back if in the area, thanks for the hospitality!

I am baffled by the positive reviews of this hotel. I paid in advance for a two-night stay because I was misled by the hotel name which suggested an affiliation with the respected Cinnamon hotel chain. This dingy place has nothing in common with that fine chain. Also misleading was a listing on a booking site showing that the hotel... More

Thank you for your point of view. I feel I need to respond as there are insinuations and statements that simply aren't correct. We are a legal entity registered in Sri Lanka. If we were trying to ride the coattails of a "fine chain" we would not be allowed to register. We use the word Cinnamon because we actually have... More

This is a property like no other I have ever stayed at. It is completely secluded by the surrounding properties and traffic. It feels like you are staying in a jungle. Their staff is always smiling and were very flexible to most of our requests. Food is made from absolutely fresh ingredients. Only issue for some can be that the... More

Kandy is a busy place, and although the sweet cinnamon is still very close to the train station and the centre of town, it is located just far enough out of town to be a peaceful and tranquil place to base yourself. You would never know that the bustling streets of Kandy are only a couple of minutes away in... More

Stayed at Sweet Cinnamon with a group of friends in early August for 3 nights and we loved it. So close to the center of Kandy, but far removed from the busy roads of town. You feel at home right away with a lovely family and staff and along with dear big puppy Molly. Breakfast offers new treats each day... More

This heaven sent oasis is on the outskirts of Kandy and was such an amazingly chilled and relaxing retreat from it's hustle and bustle. The pool was an absolute bonus set within pristine grounds that entertained us every day from the humming birds to the troop of monkeys, it was such a beautiful surround. The owners were delightful and nothing... More
